Noel Gallagher slams Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran
Appearing on this week's podcast Funny How? with Matt Morgan, Noel Gallagher is sharing his thoughts about the current music scene, and isn't too kind about it!
Despite not being on tour since 2009, Gallagher feels he knows best when it comes to current acts, and dishes out some shots to the likes of Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran!
"Music now is style over substance," he said. "I find that these young people in the music game – they f---g look great, they’ve all got tattoos and the image and all that f---g bollocks but really they’re just s--t, they’re not saying anything."
"The biggest-selling acts are s--t, whereas when I was growing up the biggest-selling acts were the best acts. The biggest band in the world was usually the best band in the world," he continued.
"Now the biggest thing in the world is f---g Taylor Swift. What?! F--k off," he said, slamming the A-lister, who has 32 Grammy nominations, and 10 wins.
Gallagher then went on to praise rock acts from the past saying, "There’ll never be another David Bowie, there’ll never be another Marc Bolan, there’ll never be another Freddie Mercury, proper rock stars."
"I don’t consider myself a rock star," he went on to say. "I’m more of a songwriter/grafter, I mean proper flamboyant rock stars."
He then added, "There’ll never be people like that because musicians will never make that kind of money and the ones that do like Ed Sheeran, f---g whatever."
"There’ll be no more private jets or David Bowie rocking into King’s Cross Station dressed as a Nazi, they’ll be none of that anymore, because people will be cowed by social media," he concluded.
